  雅思口语里有一个关于令人羡慕的工作话题,有些孩子的终极梦想就是给自己的idol当经纪人,如果你也追星,一定可以明白为啥啦!不管这到底是不是真的一个令人羡慕的工作,我们还是可以想出来很多原因把它夸成是个超赞的工作的!

  I’ve always wanted to be a manager of movie stars or singers.

  First of all, I can make truckloads of money. I heard, I can get half the money my celebrity makes. That’s a huge amount of money, if you think about it. I mean, they can make more money than the rest of ordinary people do in a lifetime by just making a commercial. And some singers can also make a fortune by holding a concert. So the payment of being a manager is awesome.

  Also, when my singer goes on tours or my actor needs to make a movie in a foreign country, I can travel around the world with him or her. I get to see exotic views and try tasty and authentic local food. Just the thought of it could make me pumped.

  The best part is, I get to meet other celebrities in show business. I can dress up and go to award ceremonies with my stars, which must be fun.

  Plus, it’s easier to know those celebrities’ gossips and the inside stories. I know it sounds like I’m spying, but I really want to know the truth. You know, what’s on the news about those celebrities are not always true, like who’s dating whom or who’s having an affair.

  So that’s why it’s my dream job.

  语言点解析:

  manager = a person who deals with the business affairs of an actor, a musician, etc.

  truckload of somebody / something = the amount of somebody / something that fills a truck (often used to express the fact that an amount is large)例如:

  a truckload of soldiers

  Their new album is selling by the truckload.

  The company is making truckloads (= a lot) of money.

  if / when you think about it = used to draw attention to a fact that is not obvious or has not previously been mentioned例如:

  It was a difficult situation, when you think about it.

  fortune = a large amount of money例如:

  He made a fortune in real estate.

  She inherited a share of the family fortune.

  A car like that costs a small fortune.

  You don't have to spend a fortune to give your family tasty, healthy meals.

  She is hoping her US debut will be the first step on the road to fame and fortune.

  That ring must be worth a fortune.

  tour = an official series of visits made to different places by a sports team, an orchestra, an important person, etc.例如:

  The band is currently on a nine-day tour of France.

  The band is on tour in France.

  a concert tour

  The Prince will visit Boston on the last leg (= part) of his American tour.

  The soldiers all used to do a six-month tour of duty in Northern Ireland.

  exotic = from or in another country, especially a tropical one; seeming exciting and unusual because it is connected with foreign countries例如:

  brightly-colored exotic flowers/ plants/ birds

  She travels to all kinds of exotic locations all over the world.

  Take a trip on an authentic Spanish galleon to the famous Papagayo beach.

  pumped = filled with energetic excitement and enthusiasm例如:

  The whole city’s so pumped for this championship that it’s unbelievable.

  show business = the business of providing public entertainment, for example in the theatre, in films/ movies or in television例如:

  show-business people/ stars

  That's showbiz!

  dress up = to wear clothes that are more formal than those you usually wear例如:

  Kids love dressing up.

  There's no need to dress up—come as you are.

  inside = known or done by somebody in a group or an organization例如:

  inside information

  Any newspaper would pay big money to get the inside story on her marriage.

  The robbery appeared to have been an inside job.
